still-sound 146. St Francis

This is my favorite picture right now.  It's a 14th C stained glass depiction of Saint Francis of Assisi preaching to birds.  I've always harbored a fondness for Saint Francis.  I'm named after him.  (Middle name).   He's the patron saint of animals and the environment.  

Look at this particularly charming owl / falcon hybrid with a lion's mane.  I wonder what Francis is saying to his aviary congregation.
